MAMMoTH - Massive Scale Machine to Machine Service

The future Internet of Things (IoT) is likely to contain tens of billions nodes providing universal control of electricity and water utilities, medical ICT and industry automation. Sensor networks of a scale of a million nodes are possible even today, and M2M automatic metering systems have already been deployed with tens of millions of nodes, and their further scale is likely to grow significantly. Managing the nodes and information provided by a large M2M networks requires structuring and organization of their data. Embedded web services is a promising development at the IETF within the Constrained RESTful Environments (core) working group. The architecture scalability beyond millions of nodes is yet an area to explore. In addition to traditional sensor network and cellular M2M devices, future machine-to-machine (M2M) internetworking should also integrate to the user’s devices, such as mobile phones with near-field communication capability or connected to short-range wireless sensors.
